Brazil Creates Registry for Oil-Sector Small Companies

Oil industry in Brazil A national registry in Brazil is going to select products and services suppliers to the seven largest oil companies in the country. The Registry System of Suppliers to the Brazilian Segment of Petroleum and Natural Gas Exploration and Production (Cadfor) was established by the National Organization of the Petroleum Industry (Onip).

The program will allow international companies operating with petroleum and natural gas production and exploration to select the registered companies whenever they hire goods and services in Brazil and abroad.

The registry includes suppliers of boilers, electrical and mechanical equipment, piping, instruments, drilling chemicals and nautical, signaling and security equipment. There are also services in naval construction, maintenance and repair, industrial setting up and assembly, civil works, exploration, logistics, specialized techniques and maritime support.

According to the superintendent at Onip, Alfredo Renault, what matters is not the size of the supplier company, but rather that they comply with the legal, technical financial and managerial prerequisites required.

"In order to be included, interested parties must have proof of supply, technical qualification, information about the company's value added state tax (ICMS), among other qualifications," says Renault.

Upon inclusion in the registry, supplier companies will automatically become part of a common registry for seven hiring companies. Good services paid might serve as a reference for new contracts.

With the Cadfor, the oil companies – Shell Brasil, Anadarko Petróleo, Chevron Brasil Devon Energy, El Paso í“leo e Gás, Maersk Brasil and StatoiHydro Brasil – are going to receive information about accredited suppliers in Brazil.

Oil companies will be able to exchange experiences with local purchases and compare products' and services' cost and quality. "Foreign companies will gain greater knowledge of national suppliers, thus enabling them to increase their purchases in Brazil," claims the Onip's superintendent, Alfredo Renault.
